"...those who would see wonderful things
must often be ready to travel alone" Henry Van Dyke
Almost on a whim, in October of 2008 I decided to load up my car with camera and bird-watching equipment, bird books, maps and a list of bird watching locations, and head north into Malaysia from my home in Singapore. I had no set plans, no firm route, and no hotel bookings. I left with a wonderful sense of freedom – it had probably been 40 years since I set out on an almost totally unplanned solo trip.
Howard Banwell is an incurable traveller, writer and photographer who developed an interest in bird watching in 2008. Since when he has spent countless frustrating but most enjoyable days searching out birds, photographing them, and attempting to identify what he has seen and taken pictures of. Howard lives in Singapore with his wife Lisa, their Golden Retriever, Sambal, their endlessly amusing Lovebirds, Lemon and Lime, and a pond full of Koi Carp.
